Life and finding gay as art.

Hello!

Once more I´m here writing to you, dear reader who is on the other side of the screen.
Don´t tell…I know…I know, every time I post something I promise I will be constant with the blog but  at the end it turns out that I don´t  post anything in a long time..(usually a year)

Don´t get me wrong,  it is not because I  am not committed to what I do or with you. It´s just that  organisation has never been one of my best qualities, in fact, unfortunately it could be said that I am pro at being messy. However, I have been fighting that, agendas, alarms, motivational quotes, lists, videos and many other things have become my allies  in this  epic war.

Anyway, since my last post I have been doing lots of things and travels. London, Puerto Vallarta, Veracruz, Los Angeles and Burbank are some of the places I have been to and each one of them has given me something new, different and exciting which has added another brick to  the construction of my career in illustration. In terms of work, I have collaborated with a couple of magazines, editorials, a big Tv Network and I was interviewed!( I´m gonna share more in the future) Undoubtedly, my path , despite moving slowly, it keeps moving forward which is the most important thing. Also, as you know, I started an Etsy shop and started going to designers bazaars in Mexico in which I invested a lot of money but I didn't handle it wisely so it was not a good investment. I don´t feel bad about it though, everything is learning.


Personally, my life is going good. As previously mentioned, I´m trying to be organised but also, I have been very reflective, listening to my heart and just creating what it says. Which leads me to the reason why this illustration is here. Being a gay guy has not been  as easy  as it looks but it has not been terrible either, I think. The pink community in which I live my everyday is  greatly  important to me and I can´t separate it from my art. I need to make part of it.


Here, this little Troye, how I called this guy is lying on top a massive pile of plush toys  which represent different types of gay guys. How? Just take a look at them and try to guess…from hunks to bears. Can you spot them?


Guys, thank you very much for coming here and please  let me know hows your life, what inspires you and if you have any advice to be more organised, they are more than welcome!

Thanks again for spending a couple of minutes with me!

Lost and found

I know.. I know... I know... I never post illustrations nor sketches here.
Why? I have no idea.

Maybe is because I have been asking myself so many questions about my illustrations like.. why should I do with them? Am I happy with them? What should I draw? What do I want to say with them? Do I really like what I do? kawaii?
To be completely honest I have not found any answer, however, I feel like I´m changing as a person  and it has been affecting my art/design. So far, what I know about me is that I´m not as naif as I thought I was and I needed time to realise  how much I love drawing, refresh my senses and see the world from another perspective. As I mentioned before, I´m changing and part of the changes that I am having and trying to embrace is a need to see male figures as we see females. There´s too much sexiness in the world to be hog by girls!

Well, since I´m trying to embrace what I feel and see, this is my response to my own complaint. Interesting I might say. The inspiration came to me while listening to the great Troye Sivan´s Bite, just felt the song and the image came to my mind. I must say that I tried to do it as a realistic illustration but my  heart said no and pushed me to do it this way. Kind of kawaii, kind of graphic.
I think I like it. I guess I like it. I do like it!
It´s giving a new and fresh air to my art, I guess.

Little Red

A veces es divertido regresar a cuentos clásicos y darles un toque fresco o pensar... que hubiera pasado si fueran amigos....

::::::::::::::::

Sometimes is fun to go back to classical fairytales and give them a fresh touch or to think.. what would happened if.... they were friends?

A charming singing

Me encantan los cuentos de hadas, las sirenas y la magia sobretodo  últimamente que estado muy clavado en el canto de las sirenas y cómo enamoran a los marineros.
Así que tomé papel y tijeras y surgió esto!

Lo mejor es que ya tengo el print de esta ilustración en etsy!!
::::::::::::::::::::: 
I love fairytales, mermaids and magic. Lately I´ve been really into the mermaid´s singing and how the make the sailors fall in love.
So I took some paper and scissors  and this came out!! 

The best part is that I have already the print on my etsy!!!
